82 300D $1100

Red W123, no rust Tx chassis, paint is thin, interior rough, looks nice from 20 feet. 350K miles showing on the working odometer. Here's the good news...

New tires
Recent front end rebuild. bushings, ball joints... everything.
Bilstien shocks
Transmission service
R12 AC blows cold
Fresh injectors, pre-chambers and glow plugs
Recent water pump and radiator
New battery and alternator voltage regulator
Rebooted axles
Recent brake job including calipers...

This car has made several (recent) trips to Colorado and New Mexico, mostly hi-way miles. Engine compression is over 400lbs on 2-5, number one is less but she still does 0-60 within the factory spec and runs out smooth. Good basic transportation I would not hesitate to drive it anywhere.

PM if interested, I hope to get pics soon.

I wish I had gotten pics before you pressed it back into service. I was considering it for my sister.
